This year Sir Peter Blake Trust Environment Forum will be held in Wellington from Sunday 11 to Thursday 15 April.
The forum is hosted in in partnership with the Ministry for the Environment and is packed with great experiences for young people aged 16 - 18. They'll meet and spend time with other like-minded young environmentalists and participate in workshops, field-trips and other activities.
Nominations are now open to students interested in environmental issues or resource management subjects. Around 45 delegates from around the country will attend the forum and two can be from Otago.
Please ensure this information is brought to the attention of your students and encourage them to be nominated. Applicants should apply in writing by Wednesday 3 March to me, at the Otago Regional Council, Private Bag 1954, Dunedin 9054.
